Kendall leads at halfway
Kendall leads at halfway


Skip Kendall, a neighbour of Tiger Woods in Orlando, Florida, outscored his fellow Windermere resident in some style, to lead The Open Championship.

The pair live on the same estate but have completely different lifestyles - Woods in a millionaire’s mansion, Kendall more soberly with his wife Beth and son Noah, while competing on the US PGA Nationwide Tour.

But it was the 39-year-old Tour veteran who stole the limelight at Royal Troon with a second round 66 to lead The Open by one stroke on seven under par.

Tracking him is overnight leader Thomas Levet (70) from France, with Barry Lane of England and KJ Choi from Korea on five under par after respective rounds of 68 and 69.

It’s a truly international leader board with Colin Montgomerie and Ernie Els two of a group of six on four under par.

Tiger Woods is currently in a tie for 18th place alongside Darren Clarke on one under par.
